About Magee-Womens Research Institute

Brought to you by Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI), a collaborative community of top-tier University of Pittsburgh researchers from diverse disciplines who work together with clinicians at UPMC, the Magee-Womens Summit brings together experts in reproductive sciences and women’s health from around the globe. The centerpiece of the Magee-Womens Summit is the awarding of the Magee Prize, a $1 million prize for transformative, collaborative research within the fields of early human development, women’s health, and reproduction.

 

Past Magee-Womens Summits have brought together hundreds of attendees from dozens of different countries to discuss complexities in women’s health on a global scale. Scientists, clinicians, and industry experts joined influential policymakers and prominent health advocates to exchange information and ideas focused on women’s health research as a scientific priority across multiple disciplines.

 

The Magee-Womens Summit gives researchers the opportunity to showcase their work and share ideas for potential collaboration. It also amplifies the voices of patients by launching an international conversation on topics influencing human health across the lifespan.
